Global Orthopedic Braces & Supports Market Size to Reach USD 7.01 Billion in 2030 | Emergen Research

Rising prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders is a major factor driving orthopedic braces & supports market revenue growth

Vancouver, Sept. 13, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global orthopedic braces & supports market size was USD 4.02 Billion in 2021 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 6.4% during the forecast period, according to latest analysis by Emergen Research. Rising prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders and rapid technological product development in terms of material and model design of orthopedic braces and supports are crucial factors driving market revenue growth. In addition, increasing incidences of sports injuries and accidents in the recent years is significantly expected to drive revenue growth of the market.

Desire to treat chronic musculoskeletal pain, avoid injury, speed up the recovery process, and push frontiers of physical and athletic performance has led to an increase in use of popular orthopedic braces such as functional knee braces, unloader braces, and neoprene sleeves. These orthopedic braces have been around for a long time in a similar form and are commonly utilized. Moreover, increased frequency of musculoskeletal problems is another factor driving rising demand and driving market growth. According to the study, burden of musculoskeletal diseases is greater in developed countries. Orthopedic braces and supports are typically used to provide lateral stability or restore alignment of knee joint components. Concept of going beyond structural support or alignment correction to increase leg muscle strength has become much more tangible as technology has advanced. As a result, large corporations have lately begun to produce orthopedic braces that use assistive device and exoskeleton technologies to not only assist people with movement problems, but also to enhance healthy knee function, skills, and minimize tiredness.

A recent trend in the market is rapid technological product development in terms of material and model design of orthopedic braces and supports. Over the last decade, material alternatives have shifted toward polymer-based components, including polymer/metal hybrids and disposable polymer devices. Orthopedic braces are devices designed to limit joint movement that are composed of robust materials such as hard plastics and soft materials including spandex or other tightly knit fabrics. As a result of recent developments in materials science and technology, prosthetic limbs have evolved dramatically. Most widely used materials in the realm of prosthetics and orthotics are thermoplastics and carbon fiber composites. Each of these materials have different purposes and applications and is used depending on patient's needs and the type of device they are receiving.

Some Key Highlights From the Report

  • The hip, back, and spine supports segment accounted for significant revenue share in 2021. Hip braces include stabilization and unloader versions, whereas knee braces include patellofemoral, prophylactic, unloader, and functional braces. Back supports aid in spinal decompression, lowering the load on spinal components. Reduced pressure lessens muscle tension, a defensive reaction to back injury and trauma, as well as pain that frequently follows. Back braces even provide proprioceptive feedback, which encourages people to improve their posture and adopt good body mechanics. Furthermore, customized hip braces are also worn during jogging and exercising to provide compression to injured or strained hip flexor muscles or to alleviate sciatica discomfort. These are the major factors driving revenue growth of this segment.
  • The E-Commerce platforms segment is expected to grow at a robust CAGR during the forecast period. Consumers are turning to e-commerce websites to purchase from a large selection of options and take advantage of advantageous offers and discounts to avoid inconvenience of physical shopping. E-commerce is changing the way that people buy and sell orthopedic products, including knee and hip braces and supports. In terms of product accessibility, affordability, transportation patterns, and many other important elements, e-commerce websites have several benefits over other types of sales channels. Furthermore, majority of clients prefer to purchase online, due to lower pricing offered compared to other merchants and physical stores. This market sector also offers several other features, such as speedy delivery, an easy ordering process, and lower transaction and product costs, which in turn, is expected to drive revenue growth of this segment.
